Hello, I'm preparing to put my first video up on Amazon/CreateSpace.  It is a 2 hour instructional video.

 

Will it be possible to format this streaming video with a menu which would take the viewer directly to a particular chapter/section of the video?

 

Thanks,

David

formatting

Posted by jubileeme Dec 11, 2017

Peace, Does anyone know how to turn off the template guidelines in Word? I'm not using a design program just Word  and PDF to formate my book and cover. Thanks for any help available.

I'm a first time createspace user but I think I'm doing things right...  I formatted my 320 page 7"x9.5" document to have a .33" margin and .66" gutter - no bleed at all - then I used Sejda to convert size to 6x9 (because I couldn't get Acrobat to do it!).  When I open the newly created PDF in Acrobat it's properties show as a 6"x9" and it looks fine.  After uploading to CreateSpace the reviewer says the file is 7.0694447x9.94... and that I need to scale it.  Why does reviewer think the file is this size and how can I fix my file so that it works when uploaded?  If I try to scale the file then random pages go blank and other funky things happen like random missing text!  What am I doing wrong?  Thanks for any advice!

When I submitted my PDF interior file for "My Cousin, Ethel Weed, A Biography and Sourcebook" for review, it came back with formatting issues on way too many pages. To resolve these issues, I switched my trim size from 7x10 to 8x10, and things were looking pretty good. When I tried resubmitting for review, I discovered to my chagrin that I exceed the 8x10 page limit of 440 pages. So I'd like to create two new projects using the same title, but as a 2-volume work, Volume I and II. Then delete the old project. What new problems would I create for myself? Look forward to your advice!

Interior Reviewer hanging

Posted by bluuman Oct 22, 2017

I am trying to review a 300 page PDF using CreateSpace Interior Reviewer and it just hangs at about 85% with 'Loading' displayed.

I have tried many times over the last couple of days to no effect, the same point being reached.

 

My PDF is clean with no errors.

I have the latest FireFox and fast broadband.

 

Anybody else with this issue?

squaring text on a page

Posted by ricksm Apr 8, 2017

We've been back and forth with CreateSpace, and they are happy to produce proof copies, but they don't seem to have any quality control process to make sure the text and cover meet acceptable publishing standards. What does it take to have CreateSpace ensure that the printed text is printed squarely on the page?

My question is. How do I convert a mpg file to a DVD ISO file? Createspace requests that film projects be unencrypted DVD ISO files.

 

Thanks!

6 x 9 Book in Adobe indesign

Posted by only613 Dec 11, 2016

Hi,

I am in the process of creating a 6" x 9" book to be printed via createspace. I created a .25 inch bleed all around. I have 2 questions:

1. I know the text needs to be inside the live area. Can I put the page numbers in between the live area and trip area, or will that be rejected by createspace?

2. I am going to be including advertisements in my book. What dimension advertisements should I tell them to prepare? Should they include a bleed?

 

Thanks very much in advance for your help!
